A Generalized High Gain Multilevel Inverter for Small Scale Solar Photovoltaic Applications

Also Available Domains Multilevel Converters

Project Code :TEPGPS577


The main objective of this project is to increase the low voltage levels of PV panels by using high gain dc-dc converters which are also known as front-end converters.


This paper proposes a nine-level quadruple boost inverter topology for small-scale solar PV applications. The proposed topology operates on a switched capacitor technique to boost the voltage, and has self-voltage balancing of capacitors. This paper presents the detailed operation of the proposed nine-level inverter, voltage stress calculations, loss analysis, and designing of circuit parameters. In addition, a high-gain generalized multilevel inverter (MLI) topology is also reported. Furthermore, the proposed MLI is compared with competitive inverters available in the recent literature. The proposed MLI topology has advantages such as a minimum total standing voltage and a reduced component count; it can also produce bipolar voltage inherently. The performance of the proposed MLI topology is validated through the MATLAB-based simulations.

Keywords: High-gain multilevel inverter, small-scale solar PV, switched capacitor, self-voltage balancing.
